When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Two mutant brothers, Logan and Victor, born 200 years ago, suffer childhood trauma and have only each other to depend on. Basically, they're fighters and killers, living from war to war through U.S. history. In modern times, a U.S. colonel, Stryker, recruits them and other mutants as commandos. Logan quits and becomes a logger, falling in love with a local teacher. When Logan refuses to rejoin Stryker's crew, the colonel sends the murderous Victor. Logan now wants revenge. Written by
Tyler Mane, who played Sabretooth in X-Men (2000), requested to reprise the role, but he was turned down by the filmmakers who wanted a younger actor for the prequel. See more »
The movie opens in "North-West Territories, Canada, 1845". The Northwest Territories (containing what is now the Northwest Territories plus Yukon, Nunavut, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and large parts of Ontario) were not part of Canada until 1870, but this caption is made for a modern audience, who would be unfamiliar with the geopolitics of 1845.

I have no idea as to why people bash Wolverine. I think its an extremely well made, highly entertaining movie with great acting and a fitting storyline. Its also pretty dark and uncompromising in many scenes.
The fight scenes are brutal and intense which makes them really awesome.
I was actually surprised by some of the plot twists. Great.
The opening title sequence should win some kind of award. Gave me goose bumps. The editing is perfect.
Only complaint is the few plot holes towards the X-men trilogy.
